Budget cuts to cover a $4.65 million shortfall have been imposed at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Chancellor Harvey Perlman told university workers in an email that the cuts were made effective Tuesday.
Trimming a point off a planned three percent increase to UNL's salary pool next year will save $3.2 million. Other cuts include eliminating non-faculty positions.
University officials have said factors contributing to the deficit include a $2.2 million shortfall carried over from the previous fiscal year, $800,000 from a system-wide budget reallocation and $570,000 in new building maintenance and operation costs.
Perlman also has said that UNL's enrollment figures, which were flat this spring, did not alleviate the budget shortfall as planned.
